Are you looking for some Valentine’s Day inspiration and ideas for a pretty tablescape? Follow along as I show you how I created a garden-inspired Valentine’s Day tablescape using the most beautiful fresh-cut blooms.
If you’re not big on crowds, Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to spend the night at home. Making dinner together, and enjoying each other’s company in the privacy of your own home can be even more fun than going out to dinner in a crowded restaurant.
I’ve created a garden-inspired Valentine’s Day-themed tablescape this year. This can work for a romantic dinner, a Valentine’s Day party, or Valentine’s dinner with close friends.
If I think back to the last time my husband and I went out to dinner on this romantic holiday, it was 13 years ago. It was our first Valentine’s Day together.

Garden-Inspired Valentine’s Day Centerpiece
My Valentine’s Day table centerpiece almost always includes a flower arrangement. I use a color scheme of red, pink, and white.
In the past, I’ve usually used grocery store flowers like roses or tulips for my Valentine’s Day tablescapes.
For this floral centerpiece, I decided to go all out and pick flowers from the local florist as well as the grocery store. Here are the beautiful blooms that I chose.
- Red and lavender roses
- White, red, and pink tulips
- White, pink, and purple stock
Here’s a tip for you. Always ask the florist if they will charge you for a floral arrangement rather than charging by stem. It saved me about $30!
Mason jars with tulips were also added to my Valentine’s Day tablescape for more garden inspiration.
Another easy way to create a floral arrangement for Valentine’s Day is to use faux flowers. They look so realistic these days.
The Valentine’s Day Table Setting
Confession time… I don’t love the color red. I’m not sure why. But it’s hard to imagine a Valentine’s Day table without it, am I right?
Adding different shades of pink to the floral centerpiece makes me happier. But I did use red and white for the place settings on my dining room table.
The white plates, wicker chargers, and red napkins shown here are from HomeGoods. The gold flatware and table runner are from Target.
Nothing says Valentine’s Day like chocolate strawberries. This faux option is perfect for any romantic Valentine’s Day table setting.
And the great thing is you can use these over and over again.
Here’s another view of this beautiful table setting.

Pretty red glasses add a pop of color to the table. These were bought at a local home decor store but some red vintage glassware would look amazing here as well.

Add Sweet Treats to Your Valentine’s Table
Adding baked goods like the mini cupcakes shown on this white cake stand is the sweetest touch.
I tell myself every year that I will make homemade cupcakes for the following year. Somehow it never happens and I buy them from the store.

We try not to have too many sweets in the house, but Valentine’s Day is an exception. Adding a tiered tray is another beautiful and easy way to display your Valentine goodies.
Some of the things I’m already thinking of for next year’s Valentine’s Day tablescape are adding rose petals to the table and making a beautiful Valentine’s Day charcuterie board.
I hope you’ve gotten a few ideas to take with you for creating a garden-inspired Valentine’s Day tablescape of your own.
Whether it’s Valentine’s Day with a loved one or Galentine’s Day with girlfriends, I hope you have a wonderful holiday.
Until next time,
Happy Valentine’s Day!
